The previous posts have made some good points in regards to medical marijuana legalization, and I would like to add that in 1975, California was the second state in the country to decriminalize marijuana, after Oregon did in 1973.

Today, recreational marijuana legalization is on the ballot for the November 2016 election, and will determine if adults over the age of 21 will be able to legally purchase and possess marijuana. If the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, or Proposition 64 is passed in a few weeks, the state will begin licensing shops.
